What is a firewall leak test?
Leak tests are small, non-destructive programs designed by security experts that deliberately attempt to bypass a firewall's outgoing security measures. The rationale behind them is simple: If these tests can get past your computer's security defences, then so can a hacker. Explicitly designed to help identify a firewall's security flaws, leak tests inform the user whether or not their firewall is providing adequate protection.
